Ingredients
  • 2   tablespoons 
    olive oil
  • 1/2  pound jar 
    presliced sweet peppers (about 1/2 inch wide)
  • 1   pound 
    lean ground beef
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    garlic salt
  • 2   tubes 
    (10 ounces each) refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1   cup 
    medium-hot salsa
  • 3   cups 
    preshredded taco cheese blend
  • 1   can 
    (2.2 ounces) sliced black olives, drained (about 1/4 cup)

Directions
1.
Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
2.
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the sweet peppers, ground beef and garlic salt; cook, stirring to break up clumps of beef, until the peppers are softened and beef is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Carefully drain off any excess fat from the skillet.
3.
Remove the pizza dough from the tubes. Cut the dough crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices, then cut each slice into quarters.
4.
In a large bowl, toss together the dough pieces and salsa. Add the cooked meat mixture, 2 cups of the shredded taco cheese blend and the olives. Scrape mixture into baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup shredded taco cheese blend over the top.
5.
Bake in 375 degree F oven for 30 minutes. Sprinkle the scallions evenly over the top. Bake for another 5 minutes. Makes 8 servings.
